    I will definitely look into the servo tester.
    For power wise, I am looking at 14v as I can run the same lipo batteries that I use in my RC. Plan to run 4 5000mah 4s batteries. They will be paired...

    I'm looking to run ~14v in it.
    The gear boxes are solid in it. I'm looking to go with a variable resistor setup instead of the on/off switch for the throttle. This will also help save the gear...

    ESC Control without radio.

    This is kind of RC related, but not at the same time.
    I'm building up a power wheels buggy for the kids to off road with.
    The OEM motors are 550 can brushed motors. (RC related bit).
    I'm debating...

    This is why I was consider the 2 packs vs. the single pack.
    If I pick up 4s pack, it will be a 2 or 3 of them or the equivalent in 2s packs.
    The upside is if a pack or cell drops, I can mix the...

    I kind of answered my own question shortly after I posted this.
    My primary buggy is a 1/8 and can easily hold the brick batteries (as shown in some of the previous pics I had posted). The extra...

    After my last good crash, my 4s 5000mah hardcase founds its inners bust through the case and hang out the end of it. Surprisingly the battery discharges and balances fine.

    Anyway, going to use...

    One thing I can say from experiences, if you go big power, expect to wear parts quickly.

    I'll try testing the battery with the meter later today if time permits. Will order another as it was my only 4s.

    I was running a fan/heatsink on my ofna lx2e and can say it helps a lot.
    The highest temp I could hit was 53'C running sand paws in deep grass.
    If I let the buggy sit for a second or so, I could...
  11. 45mph OFNA LX2e vs. pole (head on 3yrs old driver)

    Well.... Never try bashing while alone with 3 kids.
    Long story short, my son got ahold of the remote while dealing with the other 2 monsters.

    I think this may be the death of this buggy. Will...

    If its anything like my Turnigy ESC (leopard I believe), keep in mind it resets all your settings so you have to set them all in program mode.

    I just thought I would make a quick note, the lx2e can run bigger then 18t with the stock motor mount. I would guess a 21-22t pinion would fit without issues. Can't say if bigger would fit the mount.

    I had that very motor and smoked both it and the ESC. Its not meant for 1/10 vehicles as it says it is. They are good units but are better in a smaller vehicle. Check hobbyking for a decent priced...

    Do you know who makes the ESC? I'm assuming Redcat doesn't make ESC units.

    As for my location, I'm in the French River. Yourself?

    Well I'm fairly pleased. The rain let off for a bit, so throw on the 18t mod1 pinion that came in the mail today. Installed the sand paws and set the temp monitor alarm to 65'C (149'F).

    At 125, if the temp goes up proportionally (which it won't), you'll be over 180'F (in theory). I would just order a new 3s or two and take the puffed one out to the shooting range.

    I'm trying to get a base temp for each pinion. If I can run it hard and only hit a certain temp, then I know that as long as I don't go over and above, I'm safe.
